UPA has no commitments to reforms: BJP

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, July 6 (UNI) The BJP today charged the UPA government with having no commitment to reforms but only interested in remaining in power at any cost.

"UPA's commitment is not for reforms. Their commitment is remain in power. That is their sole aim and for that, they are ready to compromise their own agenda," BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar said.

Commenting on the reports that the government had decided to with hold all disinvestments following pressure from DMK, he said UPA's fragility had come to the fore. Once again, it is proved that the alliance has no ideological commitment but just a ''marriage of convenience,'' he claimed.

Mr Javadekar said this had also exposed the ''hollow cries'' of the Left Parties over the price rise. If DMK can have its way in one day, why not the Left Parties on the price rise issue. The fact remains that the Left Parties's protest over the issue was just a drama. Their protest was ''shadow boxing'' and merely ''hoax cries'' which had been exposed, he said.

Mr Javadekar said the government's reported decision had also shown that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was ready to compromise on any issue to save his government.

Meanwhile, refering to yesterday's chief ministers conference of Congress ruled states on price rise, Mr Javadekar drew attention towards the remark made by Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh that the APL wheat had not reached the state for distribution.''Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar belonged to the state and was present at the meeting,'' he noted.
